Brain and spinal cd: The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. It serves as the receiving and processing plant for outside stimuli and the point of reasoning and production of action/response. It consists of things like cognition and relaying sensory information, as well as regulating the day to day management of bodily functions.
